Police Try To Identify 20 Train Suicide Victims With Artist Impression Of Them Alive

Police are hoping to use artist's impressions to identify some of the unclaimed bodies found on Britain's rail network in the last 35 years. Artist Sharon McDonagh has drawn pictures of 20 of the deceased. None of them are believed to have been the victims of foul play and most were hit by trains.

Detective Chief Superintendent Miles Flood said: "It is likely there are still relatives who may recognise them and thought they had moved away."

There are around 1,000 cases of unidentified bodies across the country, dating back more than 50 years”

The images are being released by the British Transport Police and the National Police Improvement Agency (NPIA) in a unique attempt to close the files on fatalities stretching back to 1975.

Most of the 20 images relate to people whose bodies were found in the London area - although they may have come from anywhere in the country - while one was found in Coventry and another one in Cornwall.

In total, there have been 44 unidentified bodies found on railway lines in England, Scotland and Wales in recent decades.

Mr Flood, from British Transport Police, said: "All these fatalities were fully investigated at the time and all clues followed up to try to establish an identity, but without success.

"We are now taking another look to see if there is any more we can do, in some cases to see if advances in forensic techniques can help, and to appeal to the public to see if anyone recognises them."

Would be mad if someone on here knew someone from the pics

sad, they were obviously depressed lonely people, the fact nobody has claimed them shows they had nobody around them for support. Some are probably immigrants aswell, when my dad came here he didnt tell his mum for 4 years.
